    Would you like to provide proof of this? Are there pictures of skeletons or carcasses of this animal?

    Not only does that video show how stupid evolution is - this video shows how creation really happened.

    Nice try, Chair. But too much science and clearly using evidence that was put in place by Satan shows your initial bias. Sorry I just cannot believe all that nonsense put forth by the atheistic science conspiracy. Any while you are at it, make sure you take your chilluns out of public school.

    Just thought I would cut to the chase. Providing technical info on this forum is often a total waste of time if it does not fit with Genesis. Or at least with Walt Brown.

    Lighthouse, you wouldn't be related to Brainy Smurf, by any chance?

    Yes.

    An ungulate, complete with hooves on the tip of each digit. And yet the skull has features found only in whales. Would you like to see a slightly more evolved version?

    That skeleton was reconstructed by evolutionists (may they burn in hell), out to prove that Genesis is false. What it actually is, when correctly assembled, is the Unicorn of the King James Bible

    Ah, you figured us out. The Great Evil Science Conspiracy Against All Things Good is in trouble.

    What are you talking about? It was underlined in red, so I figured it needed checked. What of it?

    Yes.

    So, what features does it have that are only found in whales? And, yes, I would like to see some more "evolved" versions. I'd like to see the "process" that took that and turned it into a whale.

    Also, if there were no platypuses would you think Ducks and Beavers evolved from them, since they have features that are only found in ducks, and others that are only found in beavers?

    Perhaps you should follow up and contact the people who might be doing work on whale evolution and actually make an attempt to see the fossils.

    Then again, you do have photos of the ark, no doubt.

    Drawings don't prove anything. The partially recorded oral traditions of ancient desert-dwellers constitute iron-clad evidence!

    Yeah, because some animals no longer exist, so they must have evolved into something else.

    What did the dodo become?
